It is really gratifying to learn that you have had such apparent good 
success with ADMB.

As for citations, Dave and Hans produced a rather useful paper on 
ADMB-RE:  Skaug, H. and D. Fournier. 2006. Automatic approximation of 
the marginal likelihood in non-Gaussian hierarchical models. 
Computational Statistics and Data Analysis 51:699-709.

ADMB can be cited as An introduction to AD MODEL BUILDER Version 9.0.0 
for use in nonlinear modeling and statistics, available from 

I'm not sure the ADMB Project has any "official" policies, let alone one 
on how to cite itself.
